Thursday's lineups: New Mobile starter, Morrison sits

BayBears right-hander Mike Bolsinger, on the DL with an arm injury the last month, will start today in place of previously scheduled Brett Lorin.

Bolsinger (2-2, 5.49 ERA) spent the first month of the season at high-A Visalia and was 3-2 with a 2.37 ERA and 49 strikeouts in 38 innings.

He joined Mobile on May 17, took a no-hitter into the sixth inning May 29 at Jacksonville and left his next start June 4 against Birmingham after two innings with the injury. The Diamondbacks took him in the 15th round of the 2010 draft from the University of Arkansas.

In Biscuits lineup news, center fielder Ty Morrison is out of the lineup for the first time since joining the team May 11, a streak of 45 games. Brett Nommensen, who hasn't hit higher than seventh or played anything but right field, takes his place in the 2 hole.

UPDATE: Though Morrison didn't start, he was a late-inning defensive replacement, so his game streak continues.
